The Water Division operates and manages four water districts within the Town, which serve 2,340 households through public water supply systems.
The Cedar Downs Water District in the Stanwood section of Bedford serves 66 homes, the Farms Water District in The Farms section of Bedford Village serves 83 homes, the Old Post Road Water District serves 54 homes and businesses, and the Consolidated Water District distributes water to 2,137 homes and businesses in the Katonah and Bedford Hills areas.
The remainder of Town residents rely on private wells for their water, which are not operated or maintained by the Town.
The department diligently monitors the public water supply for quality. In addition, they read water meters, repair and replace fire hydrants, and repair water main breaks.

Contact the water department if there are any questions regarding water pressure problems — both too high or too low — or if you are about to undertake major construction to determine the location of water lines.
